GOOD MORNING, BLOGTOWN! And we will be together in any kind of weather, just like that, just like that. LET'S GO TO PRESS.
Because they care so much about making jobs for Americans and getting our economy back on track, House Republicans are set to vote on measure that would strip all funds from the President's health care law and effectively shut down the government. (1980s movie cafeteria slow clap.)
A month before the mass murder, Washington Navy Ship Yard shooter Aaron Alexis called police complaining that mysterious people were following him, harassing him with a microwave, and sending vibrations at him through the wall. Give this man a top level security clearance, please!

More Navy troubles! A naval officer and a NCIS agent are arrested for taking massive bribes, including fancy hotels, and—you guessed it—prostitutes.
Syria gives their good buddy Moscow "evidence" that it was rebels—NOT THE GOVERNMENT—that used sarin gas. Moscow is all like, "Why would my good friend lie?"

Now here's what's going on in your neck of the woods: Partly sunny today and 70, fully sunny and 80 tomorrow!
And finally, a USAF woman volunteers to get Tased—but I think the guy on her left gets the worst end of the deal.
